Wedding hairstyles are all about showstopping beauty and polished, intricate styling, and a sleek braided bun has those things in spades. The pretty plaits bring plenty of detail to the look, while the smooth, glossy finish keeps it elegant.

If you think this hairstyle could be a serious contender for your big day, road test the look with the tutorial below! Who knows, it might be 'the one'...

How to style it

Step 1

Starting with clean, towel dried hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream from roots to ends.

Step 2

Divide your hair into three large sections - top, middle and nape. Clip the top two out of the way so you have plenty of room to work on the bottom. Using a paddle brush to keep individual pieces of hair straight, blowdry each section completely.

Step 3

Once all of your hair is dry, spritz Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray all over and use a flat iron for any further straightening.

Step 4

Gather your hair into a tight, low ponytail, securing it roughly an inch above the nape of your neck. Divide the pony into three or four sections and braid each one individually.

Step 5

Wrap the braids around each other to form a bun shape, then secure it with bobby pins. You'll need to tack down the outside of the bun and use a few pins to keep everything in place in the middle, too.

Step 6

To add shine and prevent flyaways, mist your finished updo generously with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray.
